Well, Why Not?

Last Sunday night, if you were lucky enough to hear the post-Super Bowl interview with Seattle’s quarterback Russell Wilson, then you heard some news you can use!

He said, “We believed we would get here. At the beginning of the season I told our guys, ‘Hey, why not us?’ ”

Because those were the words of Wilson's late father.

“He used to always tell me ‘Russ, why not you?’ And what that meant was believe in yourself.”

That’s a big reason why Wilson went into football, even though the odds were stacked against him — at 5’ 11” he’s more than 3 inches shorter than the average NFL quarterback.

So, what about you?

What's your dream?

A published book?

A gallery show?

A Newbery or Caldecott medal?

Well, why not you?

PROMPT: What if you said “Why not me?” every time your head hit the wall of doubt?

Dream on!

Write on!
